  • My Brentford supporting family were not happy at Loftus Road on Monday night, but I admit to being grateful that QPR scored in injury time to ensure my BTTS (both teams to score) bet paid off. I would have rather QPR would have only scored the once so allowing Brentford to keep all three points.

    Other wins last weekend included another both teams to score pay off, this time the match between Liverpool and Chelsea at odds of 4/7. Along with victories by Bristol City at odds of 17/10, Blackburn at 4/5 and Watford to Win/Draw . . .

  • It has so far been a season when the unpredicted happens too often for the liking of any punter. Yet again this past midweek we saw a team that sits bottom of their table beat the team at the top of the same division. It is fast becoming the most bizarre season I can recall in recent years. It seems any team can beat any other.

    But that will even out over the course of the season. I find that results tend to become more predictable once we enter the Christmas and New Year period. True form tends to come . . .

  • The managerial merry go round is speeding up.

    Tony Pulis the latest top flight boss to be sacked. A man who is well respected by his fellow coaches had made West Brom hard to beat over successive seasons. But the wheels began to come off last season and things have gone from bad to worse this season. A new Chinese club owner saw West Brom swept aside by a very good Chelsea team and decided Pulis had to go.

    It's possible that the players who had played the most important role in keeping the Baggies in the top flight . . .

  • Terrible refereeing ensured Northern Ireland lost the first leg of their World Cup qualifying play off at home to Switzerland. The visitors won courtesy of a penalty that never was.

    It’s going to be tough for the well managed Northern Ireland to reverse that scoreline this weekend. They are as big as 7/1 to win in Switzerland. But Switzerland are very good at home and I fear Northern Ireland will not be going to Russia next summer.

    As for the Republic of Ireland and their two leg fixture against Denmark, this son of a Dubliner admits to finding . . .

  • One member of VG Tips has asked me who I now fancy to be relegated from the Premier League.

    Some of my August, pre-season tips are looking good already, in all divisions. But there is a very long way to go this season and too often we can see the make up of a league change dramtically over winter.

    I will not give my mid season promotion and relegation update tips to members until the turn of the year, but I do tell them now which three I fancy for the drop as at the start of November.

    They . . .

  • Tales of the unexpected. That's been the case so far in the domestic leagues this season. It has almost reached the situation whereby if the outcome of a match seems too obvious, it's possibly time to back the exact opposite outcome.

    Previously hopeless Stoke win at fortress Watford. QPR beat high flying Wolves. League 1 leaders Shrewsbury lose at Peterborough. Coventry go to Luton and win 0-3.

    At this relatively early stage of the season, the obvious does not always happen. It can pay to take a chance on the unexpected result from time to time.

    Can . . .

  • Last weekend's winning bets included a win for Leicester City at odds of 17/10, my NAP win was Sheffield United at 21/20, Derby won for members at odds of 13/10 and both teams to score Chelsea v Watford paid off at odds of 21/20.

    High scoring, top of League 2 Luton Town killed my 17/1 accumulator. Derby, Sheffield United and the Chelsea v Watford game did the business for us. All Luton had to do was score one goal at Crawley, who had lost six of their previous seven home games. The match ended . . .

  • You know your luck is out when a team that has not scored for 8 matches wins, while another side that had yet to score all season, beat Chelsea. Those victories by Bolton and Crystal Palace brought down the combined 9 teams to win, 15/1 International/Domestic accumulator last weekend.

    You have to laugh otherwise you'd go crazy.

    There are few certainties at this stage of the season. Manchester City winning the Premier League appears to be one. It only seems to be a question of what margin they will open up on the club in second.

  • Sometimes we all get tempted to bet on an accumulator, even in International midweek.

    Earlier in the week I did that. Time was too tight before the first match was played so I tweeted the 9 teams to win, 15/1 accumulator via @VGTIPS1

    All the International sides won - albeit Hungary left it late to score. So now I pray for weekend wins by Chelsea, Manchester City and Shrewsbury Town. I know some members of VG Tips picked up on the late in the day bet. They follow me on Twitter @VGTIPS1 for football and @betonsportstips for racing.

    Please feel . . .
